What stereoisomers are obtained from hydroboration–oxidation of cyclohexene?
No stereoisomers are formed in the hydroboration–oxidation of cyclohexene.
The hydroboration of an alkene gives an organoborane, which is then oxidized to give an alcohol .
If the alkene is cyclohexene, the product is cyclohexanol.
Cyclohexanol has no chiral centres, so the hydroboration-oxidation reaction with cyclohexene gives no stereoisomers.
